Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Their Impact on Supply Chains

2014-10-20
Electronic parts are used throughout industry to run everyday products, such as cell phones, and also highly technical products, such as aircraft, missiles, and spacecraft. Unlike cell phones, which are often replaced every year, the highly technical products may remain in service from 20 to more than 80 years. But what happens if the original electronic part, with a life cycle of 18 months, is no longer available? Some manufacturers have discovered that they have unwittingly purchased counterfeit ones. Counterfeit Electronic Parts and Their Impact on Supply Chains examines how these items are negatively affecting the aviation, spacecraft, and defense sectors and what can be done about it.

Visionary's Take: An Engineering Journey into the Marketplace (Part 3 of 3)

2017-10-12
Can you become a visionary or are you born one? How does a visionary capture an opportunity and makes it a successful business? Are engineers more qualified to solve technical problems or run companies? SAE's "The Visionary's Take" addresses these and many other questions, by talking directly with those who have dared to tackle difficult engineering problems, and create real-life products out of their experience. In these short episodes, Sanjiv Singh and Lyle Chamberlain, respectively CEO and Chief Engineer from Near Earth Autonomy, talk about their experience in creating a brand-new company in the UAV world. Founded in 2011, Near Earth Autonomy brought together a group of engineers and roboticists, looking for unconventional solutions to very hard logistics problems, presenting danger to human life. The answers were developed by pushing technology to a higher level, testing quickly and often, and keeping an open mind to alternative ways of framing engineering challenges.

Surface Fatigue Life of CBN and Vitreous Ground Carburized and Hardened AISI 9310 Spur Gears

1988-09-01
881292
Spur gear surface endurance tests were conducted to investigate CBN ground AISI 9310 spur gears for use in aircraft applications, to determine their endurance characteristics and to compare the results with the endurance of standard vitreous ground AISI 9310 spur gears. Tests were conducted with VIM-VAR AISI 9310 carburized and hardened gears that were finish ground with either CBN or vitreous grinding methods. Test conditions were an inlet oil temperature of 320 K (116 °F), an outlet oil temperature of 350 K (170 °F), a maximum Hertz stress of 1.71 GPa (248 ksi), and a speed of 10 000 rpm. The CBN ground gears exhibited a surface fatigue life that was slightly better than the vitreous ground gears. The subsurface residual stress of the CBN ground gears was approximately the same as that for the standard vitreous ground gears for the CBN grinding method used.

The Sensitivity of Motor Fuel Transportation and Delivery to Truck Selection and Specifications

1992-11-01
922479
This paper will discuss how the selection and specification of a motor fuel delivery truck or tractor/trailer can effect the safety of transporting, loading and unloading fuel. During these processes, several circumstances present themselves which could lead to explosion and fire. Ignition sources and component selections which minimize the danger posed by these ignition sources will be discussed. This paper applies to all MC-306 tank trucks and trailers, aircraft refueling tracks, and mobile dispensing carts using hydrant fueling systems (See Appendix 1).

The Significance of Advanced Structural Fabrication Techniques on Aircraft Lightning Protection

1968-04-29
680290
The basic electromagnetic shielding of conventional riveted aluminum aircraft construction provides inherent protection to the aircraft systems and occupants against the hazards of lightning discharges. The increased use of adhesively bonded construction techniques on structures of future aircraft indicates a potential reduction in the basic electrical continuity of the airframe. The significance of the conductivity reduction on aircraft lightning protection will be evaluated for various proposed construction techniques, including: bonded honeycomb skin panels, bonded skin joints, bonded basic structure, and different types of monocoque construction. The discussion examines related problems that have been encountered in designing protection for aluminum aircraft.

Sandwich Structure - An Evolving Concept

1970-02-01
700859
Sandwich construction has been used for many years in aircraft and missiles, because of its ability to provide strong, stiff, lightweight structures. While the technology is well-developed for certain combinations of materials, there are many new developments which will have a significant impact on future applications. These new developments can be grouped into the following categories: 1. Joining methods. 2. Materials. 3. Geometries. This paper describes new technologies being developed in each of these categories and the impact they will have on sandwich construction.

Air Transportation for Military Construction Equipment

1965-02-01
650699
Increased reliance on air transportation to support widespread military operations has produced important considerations for design of construction equipment. Characteristics of cargo aircraft, economics of transport, and design concepts for air transportable equipment are reviewed. Speed of movement, logistic economy, and unavailability of surface transportation in many regions are cited as factors that make air transportable equipment essential for future military operations.
